Love for Brushes

I'm developing a love for brushes of all kinds.  I bought a few higher end brushes and they are amazing.  They are incredibly soft and my makeup glides on like a dream.  There are so many interesting shapes. I am really interested in creating a beautiful brush collection.  Show your brushes and share any cleaning and storage tips and let us know which ones are your favorites.

The Yano brushes are available in both a set and individual.

 

looks like almost all the brushes are a mix of goat and squirrel except for the powder and highlight brushes which are squirrel only

Re: Love for Brushes

@Mochapj  These brushes don't tug my heartstrings. The angled powder shape is interesting, but not enough to make me buy the brush. I wish we knew the brush maker behind these... the angle-ended handles remind me of a specific maker whose name I can't remember right now. 

 

If anyone buys one of these brushes, please share your thoughts in this thread! I'm curious about brush performance and build quality. 

Re: Love for Brushes

@WinglessOne yeah, I'm not keen on the non-disclosure of the manufacturer.  The handles remind me of a series that Hakuhodo makes (S series) which have red handles with black bottoms

Re: Love for Brushes

Finally... Details!  I just saw via email. I don't know why, but I'm less excited, versus if I'd knew all of this beforehand.  There's something to be said for hype 🤷🏽‍♀️

Re: Love for Brushes

@Mochapj I just saw those on BeautyLish.  What do you think of them?

Re: Love for Brushes

@tjffc not for me, personally.

 

Nothing against Beautylish but I haven't been greatly impressed with the quality of most of the brushes that I own from the 'Beautylish Presents' line. For what their prices work out to in CDN, I'd rather just order brushes directly from the manufacturer so that I can choose which manufacturer has made them.

 

From a purely aesthetic standpoint, I'm also not crazy about angled bottom handles but that has zero to do with functionality and is 100% a personal preference 😄

 

Are you planning to pick any of them up?

Re: Love for Brushes

@Mochapj That seems to be what I've been hearing about recent releases from Beautylish.  I won't be purchasing these either.  I purchased a lot of brushes in 2020.  Although I am thinking of picking up one of the Sonia G brush holders which are supposed to be available tomorrow on Beautylish. 

Re: Love for Brushes

A better pic of the Yano brush collection from Beautylish. No pricing or specific details yet but they release tomorrow 1/25 at 1 pm ET/ 10 am PT. From the Beautylish description, this is a set so they may not be sold individually. These are also made in Kumano, Japan. They look a lot like some of the Chikuhodo brushes and look like they are squirrel hair.

Re: Love for Brushes

Visage USA is offering 25% off all purchases of $250 USD or more through 2/7 with code LOVE25. Does not combine with code LOVE2021 for free shipping over $95 but you get free shipping with purchases of $110 or up anyway. They only sell Chikuhodo brushes but it applies to everything including the Homare, FO, and Z series. It even works on the P-8 powder brush.

Re: Love for Brushes

@teufel  -- Thanks!  I've been wondering when the next sale is.  It had been a week or so since I last checked r fude or their site.  I really want to pick up a few of the FO series, particularly the angled face brush.   Though if Sonia G's restocks finally restock I may once again prioritize the few brushes I'm wanting to add to my collection.  I am heavily leaning toward picking up the holiday brush holder.  Ah .... hopefully they'll have an absurd amount of sales like they did last year.  LOL 🙂 

Re: Love for Brushes

I will add a picture later but lately I have been really loving my Luxie eye brushes, to me they are just as good as my urban decay double ended eye brush that I get with my naked pallets. They blend really well and are soft while some brushes I've tried are a little scratchy on the eyes. 

Re: Love for Brushes

New brush set coming from Beautylish Presents, called 'Yano'

Re: Love for Brushes

I wish there were more details on these

Re: Love for Brushes

@danielledanielle I was wondering too!

Re: Love for Brushes

My ox brush came in today, thought I'd share some pictures 🙂

It's fully lacquered and the embossing is thick and metallic, I don't think it will rub off easily.

Re: Love for Brushes

@SurprisedLemur  I was really pleased when I got mine.  I love the little design and the brush has a nice weight in the hand.  This is my first blue squirrel brush and it is soft.  I haven't washed it to try it out yet but I think this will be a winner.

Re: Love for Brushes

I received my Ox brush yesterday.

 

based on photos I’ve seen of people who received the brush as PR, I don’t think they are all like this, but the one I received is a bit sloppy in the design, just FYI. Particularly the design of the 2 oxes is not crisp and has a lot of small gold speckles at the edges, presumably where the stencil was placed

Re: Love for Brushes

@MochapjThat is to bad,your 2 ox definitely look messy.I just hauled mine out to double check since I didn't notice anything when I got it but the images are nice and crisp.

Re: Love for Brushes

That's awful! I hope beautylish makes it right for you @Mochapj .

Quick question, did your brush packaging have the usual made in Japan/Fudo sticker?

Re: Love for Brushes

@SurprisedLemur no, mine came without the sticker. It wasn't even boxed, just in a plastic sleeve inside another sleeve.
